I love waffles. They are one of my favorite breakfast foods. These Buttery Golden Buttermilk Waffles are a great recipe to add to in my collection.  These would also be perfect to make for mom for breakfast on Mother’s Day.

These waffles are easy to make. The key ingredient to these recipes is buttermilk. The real deal is what makes the best waffle. Buttermilk substitutes just don’t give you the same results. However, if you are in a pinch it will work. The results just aren’t as good.

The other key ingredient to this recipe is butter. Melted butter is mixed into the batter. These waffles are lightly crispy on the outside and cake like on the inside. The reset of the ingredients are pretty basic – flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, eggs, and vanilla. There is no need to separate the eggs with this recipe.

Most of the time, I prefer to top my waffles with some kind of fruit and sweetened whipped cream. For the photo, I topped these buttery golden waffles with homemade fresh strawberry syrup.
